It really was a magical day!
Thank you so much for planning and hosting our wedding, it really was a magical day! The help and support with planning the wedding was brilliant. Jo, was amazing and made sure the day went smoothly and to plan, even down to the small details of making sure we had canapés and bringing out the blanket for the golf buggy! You all treated us like royalty making it a truly memorable and special day! The food went down really well, could hear people commenting while they were eating which was lovely. The seabass was cooked perfectly and the chocolate torte was even nicer than when we first tried it!
